Small is beautiful

We believe stories are valuable, no matter how many people read them.
We believe following your passion is more important that watching your site
We believe in the handmade, the first try, the small start, and the good
We believe that small is beautiful.

I think that's so profound. The small is beautiful manifesto is something I believe 100%. In our society we're encouraged to be competitive, to strive to be the best, to want more, bigger, better. But, by who's definition? I really enjoy blogging and I've tried hard to resist the compulsion to change my purpose for blogging. Sometimes it's easy to feel inadequate when you stumble across a blog that was started a year ago and is seeing huge traffic. Why them and not you, you might wonder. But, this blog is not about seeing huge traffic, or advertising or making it my life. This blog is about aspects of my life that I wanted to share, whether it's just one other person who visit, that's okay with me. I'm doing my thing and doing it my way. My life has been enriched immensely by the small things I've learned from blogging and the incredible people I've "met". Pass it on, small is beautiful!
